Inglot....again :)

A while ago, like 6months :), I wrote about a swap I had with a sweety called Nikolina ( read here ) I was thrilled to have my very first Inglot and the colors I picked out were just perfect!! The quad contains numbers; 397, 487, 482 and 434 the gelliner is nr 75. The brand itself was completly new to me, as it wasn't even being sold in my country and I only heared rumours about it and other poeples blogposts. What triggered my mind most was the brightness of the colors and all people were saying was how magnificent coverage and pigmentation the products have. ( I btw picked out these specific colors after reading a post on Joey Chong's blog which you can read here )

During my little trip in Ny I did visit the Inglot shop for about 3 times...but I couldn't make any purchase cause I had no clue where to begin at. I love the eyeshadows most I have to admit, but to combine another quad seems just so easy to do, yet so hard cause I was a little overwhelmed with all the beautiful colors and textures and aarghh...leaving the shop again :S Even my husband was confused at some point for me not buying anything, well i did buy something at all the otehr shops I had only just entered...why not this one right?!

Was I so cheerful when news came Inglot would open up a store in Amsterdam ( meantime there are 2 in NL I think...correct me if I'm wrong though ) in june this year. I set this shop on my shops-to-visit-next-time-I'd-be-in-A'dam-list....which was a  while ago with my mom :)

We were the only 2 in the shop as we went on a monday...and mondays shops open up quite late ( 13ish ) and we already had a little walk from the train to Bijenkorf and towards this street. So we had the entire place for ourselves, and the sweetie, Eefje ( sorry have to note your name ) who worked that day was sooo super sweet to us I just had to buy something!! Well yes that and the fact I had my mind already set up on a triple eyeshadow freedom system thingy.

So I already had the quad and eyeliner nr 75...I bought liner nr 74 as well :) I love my purpleszz and for the triple thingy i picked out nr; 500, 502 and 467. ( fun things is mom picked out the the first 2..and last has same hint of color as well...and we were walking seperate through the shop ) as far as I can remember the triple was 20euros and the liner 12euros, which isn't a lot in my opinion. We got to pick the colors we want, the item has a perfect pigmentation and quite a bit of product. I would definatly buy again at Inglot A'dam, if anyone wants to brag up on their fav Inglot products pls do so, perhaps it'll convince me to take it along next time I visit the shop ;)

Glossybox in the Netherlands

A while ago I saw a little advert passing by as I was hunting the net for bargains. Glossybox would come to my little silly country as well...hurray :) I had seen these lovely boxes filled with miniature goodies all over the blogs and I felt left out for living here boehoee. Yes sometimes we wanna participate in the cool stuff as well ;)

Seeing the advert made me so curious that I immediatly signed up for it. Each month starting from November on you'll be getting a little box delivered filled with small goodies. ( costs would be 12,50euros including shipment ) Once received you can place a little review on their site to earn certain tokens ( 20 tokens per product, max 100 tokens per delivered box ), that way you can collect 1000 tokens to get yourself a free box! And if you feel like signing out of the program, it's no problemo either all can be arranged on their site/ your account.

Today I received the box at work, since I'll be spending most daytime there I didn't want to burden my neighbours with yet another parcel to claim for me. Normally I would have ripped the box open and inspected it and show it to my colleagues, but I was ill leaving for home :( I saved it for a better moment later on after some sleep.

Now click away if you don't want to see the content cause your package hasn't arrived yet!!

  • Herôme W.I.C. polish - Amsterdam full size and a travelsize glasvile
  • Rituals super shine lipgloss - Sugar Rose full size
  • Comfort Zone skin defender cream 15ml
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills mini-tweezer and brow gel, came along with a coupon for a touch-up at Douglas shops
  • L’oreal professionnel haarmask and Mythic hairoil both generous minis

I'm very satisfied I have to say. the minis aren't as mini as I had expected, quite generous. I love the shade of lipgloss ( I've seen other bloggers getting a different color and I prefer this one hihi ) I'm gonna stay a member for quite some time!! ( if you would purchase the gloss in one of the Ritual shops it would cost the same amount as the entire box, how cool is that ;)  )

ow hai again!!

Hellooo again :) and welcome new followers ofcourse

It's been little over a week ago since I posted last, but I had some very very important fun things to do besides!! Haha. actually it was very cultural and learnful, but indeed it involved loads of shopping as well ;)

Me and the hubby went for a midweek to Berlin. We had a perfect hotel, which was situated in the center and was easy to get to by subway, the weather was great. November can be a little harsh, but it wasn't cold at all and we had sun all 5 days. We ate at various restaurants italian, mexican, vietnamese nomnom, seen lots of architectal and cultural cool things ;) We even did 4 museums on sunday!! ( I loved the Pergamon one with the fabulous sculptures and tales and stories behind it about it )

I won't bore you with any photos and more tales about my findings in Berlin..unless you want me to ofc, I can always get back to it. I do want to share my happy buying with you, since my colleagues can't believe it all fitted in my one tiny suitcase I brought along.

I bought...a Desigual coat ( finally!! but only since it was in the outlet part of the shop, I find them way too expensive other ways ), a Desigual shirt ( a red one with a geisha-ish cartoon face on it ), a pair of lovely laced up boots with wedge soles ( dark brown ones, I never buy brown shoes! ), a black Fossil watch, CK One Shock ( on the airport ofc ) and Kiko make-up....we don't have Kiko shops.

Glamorous eye pencil nr 414 ( black with a hint of glitter), pigment loosepowder nr 5 a lilac/purple, colour sphere baked eyeshadow nr 41 again...purple :) 2 velvet mat lipsticks nr 602 & 614 a raspberry redish and a nude peach-like. I did buy a nailpolish as well...but I can't show it yet as I bought the exact same for a swap for someone ;) Was kind of tricky to buy the polishes since we had our tiny suitcases which we took with us on the plane, I was afraid they wouldn't let me take it...but I got past the checks!!

When we came back home there were some nice packages waiting for me as well...besides our silly cats :) 2 swap packages ( 1 from a lovely blogger and 1 from a fellow MUA-er...yes I have discovered MUA! ) and a little shopping-spree on AMW...gosh I am so addicted :S I'll show you all later on... :)
